Regular
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
Largely forgotten, McMullen was a good third baseman who slipped through the fingers of the talent-rich Dodgers in the early 1960s. A large man, McMullen hit as many as 21 homers during baseball’s second deadball era. He was included in the trade that sent Frank Howard from LA to the Senators, and in a new league, Mac excelled.
